'Tis thus I spend the dreary winter days, Interpreting the Calendanal Maze; My eyes beam forth a frigid steely glitter That silences all undergraduate twitter. But ever as the seasons bring the spring I feel at one with every sentient thing, And supervise a sort of Incubation The net result of which is Graduation. Thus once a year I really vie with God And bring forth Graduates like peas in pod ; By sheer creative act I make Mentality Which goes in time to form a nationality. But, truth to tell, the strain of it is great, To God I'd gladly leave it to create; For I by temperament do find it meeter To emulate on earth the Holy Peter.

Broad black-beribboned tortoiseshell his nose Bestrides, while on his neat bespatted toes He prances as the intermittent flow Of wit and wisdom fills the brains below. Now against Patronage he lifts his arm With threatening gesture, now upon his farm. While Marmaduke and Algernon display Their sad propensities, he fills his day And serves his country by conserving food. But most his soul with liberal arts endued Delights to foster music's softer charms With tuneful din to wake the street's alarms — A cry that shivers to the tingling skies — While Robert's wail antiphonal replies!

Through all his lectures is a sound Of Irony. He is not young And foolish. Arbiter is he Of Elegancies to a crude And new Philistia, in arts Untrained, in humane letters rude.

In one case the writer says that he is now earning six times his previous income as the result of the increased efficiency this training has given him. Other letters say how their writers have caught the eye of their superiors and have been promoted over the heads of many of their co-workers simply because of the qualities they have developed by means of Pelmanism. One business man in a letter reprinted below states that he has made $5,000 in a single year as a result of enrolling for the Pelman Course. Some people, knowing the great educational value of Pelmanism and the way it enables men and women to broaden their intellectual outlook, to increase their knowledge of literature, art, and science, to become good conversationists, and to cultivate the social arts, have thought that this is all that Pelmanism does. This is not the ease. Pelmanism does all this. It develops the "higher values" of life. But it does more. It develops your business capacity as well. This is the most important at the present time. Industry to-day needs keen, efficient minds. It needs them more now than it ever did. And Pelmanism makes you keen and efficient. It enables -you to take full advantage of the opportunities for advancement now afforded by the Business World. So if you wish to advance your fin- ancial position, as well as your social position, you should certainly apply for particulars of the Pelman Course. They will be sent you gratis and post free on application to the address printed below. This is an opportunity no one can afford to neglect. "Write or call for these free particulars to-day. FREE OF FER TO READERS Great Opportunity for Those Who Wish to Rise to a Higher Position. FACTS AND FIGURES EVERYONE SHOULD READ Many people nowadays are living half -lives. They are not progressing as they ought to do. They are not concentrating their energies on a single goal. They are allowing their minds to stray in different directions. Consequently, although the cost of living is continually rising, their incomes are not keeping pace with rising prices. In other words, they are falling behind. They are not in such a good position as they were even a few months ago. WORKING AT FULL POWEE. Pelmanism alters all this. It enables you to put forth your full powers. It enables you to save waste of time and energy. It gives you the power to take on work previously beyond your capacity, and it enables you to do this work well and to make good. That is why Pelmanists in every profession, business, and occupation are forging rapidly ahead, trebling and quadrup- ling their incomes and securing swift promotion to higher positions of responsibility. The value of Pelmanism is very quickly shown by the figures in your bankbook. TYPICAL EXAMPLES. Bead, for example, the following letters — just a few taken at random from the piles of similar communications which reach the Pelman Institute every day: — SALARY INCREASED 300% "Please accept my best thanks. . . . I have improved 300% in salary." From a CLERK. $5,000 FROM AN IDEA. "I have cleared over $5,000 from en idea which material- ised by the Pelman methods, so you will understand better than I can write it the gratitude I feel towards the Pelman Institute." From PELMANIST M.10,527. $5,000 BENEFIT. "In $ and c. I benefit to the extent of $5,000 at least this year. That is not a boast, but true business fact, and I can prove it. . . . When I go abroad, as I do a good deal, or if I feel out of sorts, down in the mouth, etc., I have a good dose of Lesson V. Lesson V. is always in my kit-bag on my foreign travels." From an IMPORTER. INCOME QUADRUPLED. "Since I commenced your Course of Instruction my effi- ciency has vastly increased. My income has gone up 300%. ... I attribute all this to the Pelman Course. ' ' From an ARCHITECT. POSITION SECURED. "When engaging a secretary some months ago I was told, in reply to my inquiry as to whether the candidate claimed intelligence, that she was an enthusiastic Pelman student. I engaged her upon the spot, subject to references, and my decision has been more than justified." From a SOLICITOR. INCREASE OF $1,000. ' ' I have benefited very greatly on the financial side, having just received a rise in salary of $1,000 a year, bringing me up to $2,750, a figure undreamt of a year or so ago. I consider that the Pelman Course is, from the standpoint of money alone, a most profitable investment, and from the intellectual standpoint a veritable resurrection of the mind."
